and politics is like throwing gas on a fire, and nowhere is that truer right now than in iraq. the iraqi vice president has been sentenced to death on charges of running death squads. this is the current one, not sadd saddam's, the current one. now, he in turn is accusing the prime minister, the current one, al maliki of carrying out a political vendetta. the vice president is a prominent sunni muslim. al maliki is a shiite. i think you get the picture here. that vp is in exile in turkey. today he declared his innocence. >> i totally reject and will never recognize the unjust, the politically motivated verdict, which was expected from the outset of the trial. >> coinciding with the verdict, a wave of bombings. look at pictures. they are becoming familiar elsewhere. they were up familiar at one time. this time more than 90 people wounded -- 90 people killed and 300 wounded aacrocross the coun. sunni insurgents belonging to al qaeda in iraq claiming responsibility. you might sum this up in one word. mess. ivan watson is monitoring the developments from istanbul. last i checked the americans spe

't plant an army in every country around our embassy. in iraq we have because there is a war zone. there still is a small army associated with the embassy. i think there are 17,000 people there in the green zone in iraq. i think that in a war zone, it's a little bit different. i don't want to second-guess the protection, but i do want to second-guess that our response should be very clear to libya and very clear to egypt that if we're going to have an embassy in the country, we need to be saved, and if we're going to spend money, we need to protect our embassy. lou: you believe that governor romney was too quick and too severe in his criticism of the obama administration as he turned a critical eye to the way in which the state department was apologizing to radical islam is at the very moment that they had stormed our embassy in cairo and were within very short order to be killing four americans, including the ambassador of libya? >> my response was very similar to governor romney's. that was to feel like it's not appropriate when the ambassador has been assassinated and your emba

all over the world. look at this morning in iraq. we've got a miserable failure in iraq. it's unraveling. afghanistan, more insider killings, because this president doesn't believe in american exceptionalism and keeps telling people we're leaving. have you ever heard him say victory? finally he said something about syria, but now we're going to give them communications equipment, which does very well against attack airplanes and helicopters and artillery and tanks. >> you're being sarcastic here. you want to give more? >> of course, we need to arm them. the iranians have admitted that they're on the ground. russian arms are flowing in. iranian planes are flying over iraq as we speak. >> do you think there's a conflict? do you think we need to add to it? >> i think the role of america is to lead, not follow. by the way, we blame it on the video, and it shows the absolute inept tud and ignorance of the realities. >> they were blaming the protests against the american embassy and the deaths, in fact -- >> it's the not videos. it's the radical islamists that are pushing the vide
